Illustration for article titled The V70 went to my mechanic this morning and has been given a nearly perfect bill of health

It could use front control arm bushings and rear sway bar links in the next 6 months or so, and I “would notice new shocks, but don’t need them yet”. Tires soon, but I knew that. There’s a saved code about incorrect hydraulic pressure in the rear diff, but he doesn’t think it’s anything because it’s not giving DSC or ABS codes. The brakes are new, the transmission is strong, and the engine is tight and healthy. No signs of any leaks, PCV system is good, no shaft play in the turbo and no oil leaks or seepage at all in or around the turbo. It’s “unusually good for the miles”, so that’s awesome.
